Qualitative research into Registration Assessment performance among Black-African candidates

Tuesday 9 August 2016


This General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC) report explores the experiences and performances of Black-African candidates in the Registration Assessment. For this work we held depth, qualitative interviews and focus groups with Black-African trainees and recently registered pharmacists and interviews with people who are involved in pharmacist education and training.

The research concludes by suggesting some actions which may help improve the experience and performance of some Black-African trainees and at the same time offer benefits to all pharmacy students and trainees, and ultimately to the pharmacy profession.
